Augusta's Review of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
It's surprising when you find one of these rare epics that still manage
to captivate and spellbind over such a long period of time. The visuals
were absolutely majestic, yet the story managed to unfold with such
grace and never dawdled.
The actors proved worthy of the role they played and kept up their
spirit throughout. It was also nice to feel a little light-heartedness
among the fantasy, drama and suspense that occurred. Even for being almost 3 hours long, it seems much better even than those films that was less than 2 hours long as it proved still very much interesting.
To be honest, I couldn't really point out what was actually bad about
it, because it just looks like one of the best fantasy epics ever made.
It just goes to show that a good film can have such spellbinding
visuals and an intelligent plot simultaneously.
